Lots of new folks to welcome to Ecosteader! I enjoyed reading why you want to join, and am glad you are here.
Please make yourself at home. Feel free to post an intro and some piece of nature that inspires you: park life, wild plants, or plants you're growing for wildlife... as Autumn moves on, there's so much beauty out there.
As I've mentioned before, it was not my original plan to make a server focused on climate-change related things; but that stuff does belong here: to keep track as best we can of what works and to learn from what are obviously intractable mistakes of colonials.
As bad as it gets, there are always small victories as we lend support to #indigenous relatives. Like you, I want to focus mostly on the good, on what we can build or do better... we can do this.
Melg'pugua'sit! We stand with Wet'suwet'en. Decolonize: "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) is the only thing that can help humans as the colonizers' planet continues to sink deeper into the chaos and destruction of broken, inequitable, and faulty systems that value money over Earth's many forms of life. We encourage you to join us on a better path as we build and participate in an Ecological Democracy that includes #AllThePeople as envisioned by Mark Charles, a Navajo Nation member running as an Independent candidate for President. #LivingWalls, not border walls. The Earth does not sustain white supremacists.
